Renew Europe CoR shows support for abortion rights

Following the sentencing of women’s rights activist Justyna Wydrzyńska in Poland for helping another woman access abortion pills, the Renew Europe Group in the Committee of the Regions (CoR) rallied behind her and the Simone Veil Pact for gender equality.  

Commenting on the unjust sentence, Renew Europe CoR President François Decoster said: 

We commit to preserving, promoting and strengthening women’s rights at all levels of government. Sexual and reproductive rights such as access to contraception and abortion should be a guarantee for every woman. That’s why we signed the Simone Veil Pact for gender equality. 

Renew Europe CoR Members including Kate Feeney, Michiel Rijsberman, Anne Rudisuhli, Thomas Rohden and Hanne Roed also came out in support. All women should have access to safe and legal abortion of an unwanted pregnancy at an early stage.
